N2 - It is shown that the capacity of the channel modeled by (a discretized version of) the stochastic nonlinear Schrödinger (NLS) equation is upper-bounded by log(l + SNR) with SNR = P0/σ2(z), where P0 is the average input signal power and σ2(z) is the total noise power up to distance z. The result is a consequence of the fact that the deterministic NLS equation is a Hamiltonian energy-preserving dynamical system.
